Saudi King takes 1500 staff to Russian Federation

While Russia and Saudi Arabia are now allies on the global oil market, they are on the opposite sides in the Syria conflict, with Moscow supporting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad and Riyadh backing the opposition.

Al-Falih was speaking at the start of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz's historic first visit to Russian Federation to meet with President Vladimir Putin.

Saudi monarch Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud's first visit to Russian Federation is over.

Saudi Arabia signed preliminary agreements to buy Russian Federation " s S-400 air defence systems and anti-tank guided missile systems and receive "cutting edge technologies", said the Sunni state " s military firm, Saudi Arabian Military Industries.

King Salman, who is worth a reputed $17billion, was in Russian Federation to discuss cooperation on oil production and their differences over Syria and Iran.

"We aim to strengthen our relations in the interests of peace and security, in the interests of developing the world economy", the Saudi monarch responded.

Tories discuss early leadership election in wake of PM speech
In a bid to rally May, audience members gave her a standing ovation while she moved away from the microphone to clear her throat. But she defined the "British dream" for most people as the prospect that "their children will do better than themselves".

"We emphasize that the security and stability of the Gulf region and the Middle East is an urgent necessity for achieving stability and security in Yemen", Salman said, as quoted by Russia's Interfax news agency.

"The Saudis want help on Iran, and Russia wants trade and investment", said Mark N. Katz, a Russia-Middle East relations analyst at George Mason University. The two countries have expressed interest in various business deals despite differences over Syria.

"LNG is one of the areas where we are looking for partners in Russia", Amin H. Nasser, president and chief executive officer of Saudi Aramco, told reporters in Moscow on Thursday. The King expressed his desire to continue cooperation with Russian Federation to maintain stability in the oil market. But the start of a four day state visit was interrupted when the special escalator malfunctioned halfway and the king had to walk down.

At the core of Saudi Arabia's regional woes is its rival Iran, which is backed by Russian Federation.

There has been no immediate USA reaction to the growing ties between Riyadh and Moscow.

Saudi Arabia says it has signed a memorandum of understanding on the purchase of S-400 air defence systems from Russia's state arms exporter during Saudi King Salman's landmark trip to Moscow on Thursday. Relations improved under the Trump administration, but Washington's focus in Syria continues to be on fighting the Islamic State group, not on ousting Assad.
